    It's possible to buy the Anglo arms knives much cheaper but I'm not a fan. The lock knives and Spring assisted knives are illegal as an everyday carry in the UK. (They're no use if they get you arrested while trying to board a train) A Swiss Army knife is a legal multi purpose knife for EDC and if you're looking for a fixed blade knife i would reccomend any of the cheaper end Mora steel clipper knives as back ups and a Kbar as your go to fixed blade, not quite as showy as some of the shiney shit that Anglo arms retail but infinitely better quality.

    like most preppers I have a collection of knives, its an addiction I cant stop buying them!
    I prefer a lock knife for my EDC, any knife unless a fixed blade that dosent lock is a dangerous knife I think.

    I was given a buffalo river knife, while the concave ground blade has a nice weight to it it doesn't keep a great edge. It now lives in the back of the sock drawer with my other mistakes.

    i'd like a MOD SURVIVAL KNIFE but the cost is a little more than what I usually pay and buying online can be a bit of a pain with all the id checks and stuff.

    This is something I've spoken on before ( not that i'm claiming to be an expert just someone who has been doing all sort of preppy stuff for years ) but I'd really ask people to consider what the MOST important part of what it means to BE a survival Knife actually is????


    There are some truly seriously horrendous thought processes that go on when we consider ' Survival Situations ' and look at kit.

    I'll leave it there for a bit but ask yourself what the most important part of being able to access a " Survival Knife " is IN a survival situation??

    I've said it before, non of my preps are primarily weapons. They are tools. With My Swiss Army folding penknife I can do anything from making trap triggers to minor surgery.....try removing a septic splinter with your 18"zombie slaying kukri and you'll soon see the appeal of the Swiss Army knife.

    Never had a problem with the edge mate....shaving sharp and after a good days use all it needs is a few swipes over the top edge of the car window and it's back. Av purposely abused this knife and it always pulls through...it's a little workhorse...not everyone's cup of tea mate:thumbsup:

    An unashamed plug from me for moonrakerknives.co.uk from whom I buy any knives I need. Absolutely brilliant service and run by the nicest people you could ever meet.
